île de païn


On Sunday, 10 April, the Knysna Sedgefield Hospice Annual Golf Day was held for the third time at the beautiful Pezula Golf Club & Championship Course
Much to the relief of the Hospice Events team the day dawned clear and sunny with little threat of rain. After many weeks of tireless preparation, the team welcomed 104 players to a day of competition, fantastic prizes, delicious food from Pezula Deli, fun and laughter.
As always, none of this is ever possible without the generosity of all who contribute – the sponsors and donors, Pezula Golf Club & Championship Course and the helpers who give of their time.
Hospice truly appreciates every contribution that made this event as successful as it was.

With the 3rd wave amoung us and Level 4 lockdown it is important to help where we can by supporting local. 🌸

The resturant industry has once again been hit hard but we can all do our part in helping them through this, if you can remember to order in. 🙌

Here are a list of my favorite local resturants that are doing take aways!

- île de païn, for the best freshly baked bread and croissants in town! 🥐 🍞
- Coffee Craft, head over for a drool-worthy breakfast bagel on the run. 🥯 ☕️
- Blend Country Restaurant, serves the best hearty meals, my favorite is their chicken snitzel. 🍛
- Trinity Coffee Co. will satisfy your sweet tooth with a slice of their decadent chocolate cake. 🍰 ☕️

Keep safe, stronger together.

Love, Tracy
Your chocolate eclair/croissant needs more chocolate; one teaspoon is really not very generous, and the flavour distribution is nowhere near as even and as balanced as in the danish-style thing with the latvian or whatever name. But the pastry itself is the best I've had in SA.

Hi il de pain,

Can you give me some info on the baking plate / steel you sell.
What are the dimensions and how thick is the plate?
I've been here a few times and always enjoy the outing. Staff exceptionally friendly. Today Nicky our waitress must be given a medal. Being an ex Knysna boy, she brought back fond memories.

My food was pleasant, but the poached eggs could have done with a hollandaise sauce/ cream as I found it rather dry.

When I move back to Knysna as I'm house hunting, Nicky will be the first person I'll want as a staff member.

We welcome Migliarina Wines to IDP for an evening of wine tasting and canapes on Tuesday June 7th.

Founded by Carsten Migliarina in 2002 when he produced his first wine under his own label. Starting very small, the first production consisted of a Sauvignon Blanc and a Shiraz, both from Franschhoek. The Shiraz was matured in a friends garage.

“Often at tastings I am asked “where are you” in the context of where my estate is, my reply “right in front of you”. I do not own a wine farm, I am not unhappy about this as it allows me the freedom to source the best grapes from the best vineyards I can find.” Carsten Migliarina
